Norwich City sign Finland striker Teemu Pukki

30 June 2018

Norwich City are delighted to announce that striker Teemu Pukki will join the club on a free transfer from July 1, subject to international clearance.

Pukki, 28, signs a three-year deal with the Canaries after spending the last four seasons playing for Danish Superliga side Brondby.

His previous clubs include Celtic, Schalke and Sevilla and he is a seasoned Finland international, making 64 appearances and scoring 12 goals for his national side.

Pukki becomes City’s third signing of the summer after the arrivals of Emi Buendia and Moritz Leitner.

Head Coach Daniel Farke said: “I’m very pleased with this signing. We got the feeling that Teemu is a good fit to our ideas because he is a technical player with really smart movements.

“We were speaking about how we need to make more runs in-behind and runs from deep and he’s a player who has the smart movements.

“He also has lots of speed which is also important. Wherever he plays, he was always able to be there with goals and assists.

“He’s a brilliant character as well so we are very pleased to have him with us.”
